Physician Master Agreement drafted
As you know, Paul Straszak, the Doctors of BC chief negotiator, has drafted a tentative Physician Master Agreement with the government. He has presented this agreement in detail to the Specialists of BC Executive, and at a recent section heads forum.
It does seem this is the best contract that any of the other provinces have been able to craft with their governments.
No agreement will ever be perfect, but I think that within today’s economic and political climate, it is as good as we are likely to get. It does address as many concerns as possible that were raised by the various sections.
We at the SBC support the tentative PMA agreement, and encourage your support as well in ratifying it.
